Giants pitcher Luis Madero tests positive for coronavirus

San Francisco Giants pitcher Luis Madero tested positive for the coronavirus, manager Gabe Kapler said Friday.

Kapler said Madero was the only Giants player in the 60-man pool to test positive at this point, but that some players are still awaiting results.


Madero, a right-handed starter, was claimed by the Giants on waivers from the Los Angeles Angels in January. In 24 appearances in the minors last season, he compiled a 5.03 ERA and 1.54 WHIP.

Kapler said Madero had given the club permission to announce the positive test.
